Product Information
Specification
Great Britain: 1914 Star (Mons Star). 
Officially attributed to: 
1542 PTE. W. DELANEY IR. GDS. (Private 
William Delaney, Irish Guards). 
The 1914 Star was instituted in 1917 and was 
awarded for service in France and Belgium 
between 5 Aug. and 22 Nov. 1914. 
The 1914 Star was principally an Army award, 
although some Royal Navy personnel also 
qualified, having served ashore at Antwerp 
during the qualifying period. A few women 
who served in France and Belgium as nurses 
or auxiliaries were also awarded the medal.
The majority of the recipients were officers 
and men of the pre-war regular British Army, 
specifically the British Expeditionary Force, 
that landed in France soon after the outbreak 
of the War and took part in the Retreat from 
Mons, hence the medal's nickname "Mons 
Star".
